Hurricane Sandy has many asking for an extension of the Halloween events, however that won't be possible according to Martin Kerstein.

We heard your questions about extending the Halloween event for those of you affected by Sandy. Unfortunately we cannot do that, but the reason why we can't is exciting: We are preparing for our big November update, which will start on November 15, and there will be content that will be in the game prior to that, leading up to the event. But we also want to use this moment to remind you all that your personal safety is much more important than any computer game. If you could be affected by the storm, please listen to the authorities and take every precaution to ensure you and your loved ones are safe. Tyria will still be there once the storm is over. [Source
In case you missed it, the most important line is not the date for the update, but the big heart going out to those affected by the storm.
